Filmmaker Amanda Milius, who served in the State Department under President Trump, says that individuals who attach themselves to the administration for the purpose of undermining it pose more of a problem than career government workers.

"But the people who joined the administration to subvert it, that's really where the big problems are. The bad politicals are worse than 10 bad careers because they can do so much damage," Milius said on the most recent "John Solomon Reports" podcast. "And then for some reason, especially at State, we keep promoting people who outwardly work against the president," she said. "I have no idea why some of these people are still allowed in the building."

Milius, producer of the documentary "The Plot Against the President," also said that people who are a member of "the wrong political party and friends with the wrong people and voted for the wrong person, you are just as in danger of having your life destroyed by the intelligence agencies and the FBI as you are by any foreign actor."

Milius, whose father John Milius wrote "Apocalypse Now," said that the upcoming election will be critical for the nation, noting that "our entire republic is really at stake."

Unless the various bad actors face consequences for their behavior they will continue to persist in their ways, Milius said. 

"No matter what happens in the election ... if you don't punish these people they're just gonna keep doing it," she also said.
